In Grand Tradition, Prince George Has Been Gifted By Kenyan Tribal Leaders, Herd Of Cattle, Goat, Palace Confirms, Highlight Hollywood News

Many will laugh, but if you know anything about history, the future King of England is a really blessed man today.  Georgeous Prince George is now the proud owner of a herd of cows. A  tribe in Kenya has decided to gift Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s first-born child with four  heifers, a bull, and a goat in honor of his recent christening. The present is  said to be symbolic of a blessing from the Samburu community — a deeply  significant honor.

 

 

The palace confirmed that the animals will be raised in Lewa, where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge  enjoyed a safari in 2010. It was during that trip to Kenya, in fact, that Prince  William proposed to his wife.

The Duke  sent a letter of thanks to the Samburu community for their  thoughtful and very meaningful gift. “Thank you all so very much for the  extraordinary honour. I remember my time with you with immense happiness and I  could not be more grateful to you all for this kindness,” he wrote.

 

 

“It brings me great joy to know George’s ‘pension’ will be herded on a land  we care deeply for. We hope one day he will be able to see them for himself,”  the proud father added.

Prince William has been vocal about wanting to take his son to Africa  someday. He first experienced the continent through his late mother, Princess Diana, and has been active in several  causes there ever since. Among those closest to his heart? Wildlife  conservation.

 

 

“Like any new parents, our thoughts inevitably turn to the world that our  child will inherit,” he said in September. “It is unfathomable to imagine a  world in which children who have been born in the past couple of months may grow  up in a world in which rhinoceros have ceased to live in the wild.”

 

 

“The possibility of extinction is bad enough for one of our children growing  up here in the West, who never experience the magic of seeing a rhino,” he  continued, “or even for my own little George, who Catherine and I very much hope  to introduce to east Africa — a place we know and love — in the fullness of  time.”

When Uncle Harry returns from his 3-week plus trek to the South Pole, he’ll be laughing and proud of his favorite nephew, George.
